Also known as a Sprig, Sprigtail, Spike, or a Spike tail, the Pintail is a medium size dabbling duck that can be easily distinguished from the other dabblers due to its long slender profile, elegant neck, and of course their pointed tail. Male Pintails have a long thin tail feather that can measure as great as 6 inches, and the females also have a distinct tail that only measures about a quarter of the males. This slim tail feather narrows down to a sharp point and takes credit for where this beautiful waterfowl gets its name. Pintails are usually found gliding through marshes, ponds, lakes, and rivers.
